Trump Jr. Uses Bogus WikiLeaks Info To Try And Distract From His Own Legal Problems

Much like his father, Donald Trump Jr. is up to his eyebrows in the Russia scandal, so he feels a need to try and deflect from that fact by tweeting out baseless claims he thinks will change the topic. Instead, they only make him look desperate, guilty, and moronic.

Junior’s latest attempt at diversion is a suggestion that originated with WikiLeaks and alleges that The New York Times “colluded” with Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State in the Obama administration. Don Jr. tweeted out this:

Be sure and note the link to the far right news site Daily Wire, which is known to be completely unreliable and a shill for the Trump administration.

The author of the Times report referred to by Junior and the Daily Wire is Scott Shane, and he quickly poured cold water on Junior’s specious claims:

When it comes to WikiLeaks, it should be noted that Don Jr. has dirty hands. He exchanged messages with them during the 2016 election. Oh, and let’s not forget that WikiLeaks has extensive ties to Russian intelligence. A U.S. intelligence report from 2017 said the:

“Kremlin’s principal international propaganda outlet RT (formerly Russia Today) has actively collaborated with WikiLeaks.”

Hmm…another connection between a member of the Trump family and Russian president/terrorist/mass murderer Vladimir Putin. Image that!
